Issues with Localhost vs URL (2 posts)

    Hi All,

    A little while ago I started playing with wordpress for the first time. I got myself a theme and installed it and again played around a little to get to know it a little - using localhost

    Now I have decided to get some webhosting (via Hostmonster) and have got a domain with a proper URL. However, now I needed to get wordpress linked to the new domain. Since I hadn't done very much with the LOCALHOST installation, I decided to do a fresh installation of WordPress via Simple Script.

    I successfully installed this and also re-installed the theme. However, if I try to update my theme via the e-panel, I get an error - basically if I try to upload an image for the logo, I get a message that says "cheating eh?" .... very strange !!

    I was wondering if this could be due to the fact that I still have my previous installation of Worpress on my local computer.

    Anyone see this before?

    That cheating message is not something that comes from WordPress by default. It can only come from the Theme or a Plugin. It would probably be a theme/plugin that you had to pay for and was not free. That's what it means by "cheating" is that you're trying to get around paying for the theme/plugin again.

    You will have to contact the creator of the theme/plugin for help on this one.
